Instructor, Committee on Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science

University of Chicago's Committee on Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science

Job type: tenure track

Application deadline: December 15, 2014


The University of Chicago’s Committee on Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science invites applications for a position as Instructor beginning September 2015, with a two-year nonrenewable term.  Applicants should have received a PhD within the last five years, and not already hold a tenure-track position. Expertise should be in the areas of History, Philosophy, or Sociology of Science.  Applications are welcome from all periods and areas of science, though we have a particular interest in Philosophy of Biology.   This is a research and teaching post-doctoral position, requiring two courses be taught in the academic year–Chicago is on the quarter system, with three terms to the academic year.  Applicants should have interests that go beyond the research specialties they profess.  Chicago’s programs are quite interdisciplinary, and so candidates should be ready to interact with faculty and students from an array of different specialties.  We value diversity among students, staff, and faculty and strongly encourage applications from women and underrepresented minority scholars.  Candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand by April, 2015.
